10 Perfect New Year’s Eve Outfits You Can Still Buy Now

There is no better holiday for fashion than New Year’s Eve. With few traditions to abide by and no family to please, it’s all about self expression and a good time. A number of new labels have cropped up solely to bring the party to every day wear, like The Attico, and London’s 16Arlington. Choose a silver sparkling dress from the latter, or opt for a low key version of the party dress by pairing a festive skirt with a camisole or t-shirt. Velvet is also a perennial holiday dressing favorite, but for the girl who would rather leave the frippery at home, a uber cool Paco Rabanne look, paired with chunky-heeled boots from Chloé is the way to go. While some may choose to ruin their evening in impractical sky high heels, we love opting for a shiny silver kitten heel, or a simple, clean 2-strap sandal, or even barefoot (that is, if you’ll be ringing in 2019 on a sandy beach somewhere). No matter where your New Year’s Eve plans lead you, you’ll be the life of the party in one of these ten W-approved party outfits, below.


Sometimes it is best to stick to a classic silhouette and let your accessories do the talking. We love this slip dress from Jacquemus and velvet and diamante bag from Attico.
